I just recently posted a video on our YouTube channel about the history of Masada in the Negev desert. Just in case you didn’t see that video I’ll go over the brief history of that story. After our Lord Jesus Christ came to this world and delivered his message to the people, the leaders of the Jewish nation denied him as the Messiah. In turn, Jesus gave the prophecy in Luke 19:41-44 KJV
And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it, Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes. For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.
In the year 66 AD the Nation of Israel began to fall, and in 73 AD the last stronghold of the Jewish Nation was about 1,000 strong and made their last stand at Masada unsuccessfully. They had to watch for months the Roman army beneath them using their people as slaves that they had conquered as they swept across the land, to build the ramp that would lead to their destruction. As they looked down and watched the unavoidable fate that awaited them they had plenty of time to think about the mistakes of the leaders that they had placed in position at that time.
See even though we are Believers and we are always striving to fulfill God’s commandments and be obedient to his wishes, doesn’t mean that we are exempt from his punishments in the world we live in. God judges nations by the decisions their leaders make and how those leaders of nations morally and spiritually guide the nation. Just now the President of the United States Joe Biden gave 15 million dollars to the Hamas in Gaza on the same evening that the Hamas had fired a long-range missile towards Beer Sheva while our Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was in the city campaigning for this recent election. Let us also not forget the recent developments of Biden moving quickly towards the nuclear deal with Iran.
Another new development is the deal that China made with Iran; China will give Iran Financial and Military aid in return for a new Oil deal with them. China and Russia have always acted against Israel’s interests, as we know God promised us that he would Bless those that Bless Israel and Curse those that Curse Israel. If you want to see proof of that then look no further than how the people live in China, Russia, Iran, Lebanon, and many other places that continuously act against Israel’s best interest.
Our Ministry has been working to get everything ready to bring Jews back home to Israel where it will be the only safe place in the world for a Jew to be. This has always been and always will be our number 1 mission. God started moving my Father into this Ministry over 40 years ago. For the past 20 plus years, we have been spending every resource available to make all the nautical, political, and financial preparations needed to make this mission possible. This is a never-ending work as boats need continuous maintenance, Politicians are changing and new contacts need to be made, as well as keeping in good standings with marinas in the relevant Mediterranean ports.
While I am writing this, it is Holocaust Day. The Day we remember the 6 Million Killed by the hands of the Nazis. This year in Israel 1,000 Holocaust survivors had died and left behind a small number of survivors remaining. I fear that by the time my children are old enough to understand what had happened to our precious people in WWII there will be no survivors left to tell the story firsthand. It is left to us to continue to remind ourselves and make the promise of NEVER AGAIN!
My wife Ola and I celebrated our honeymoon, working on the gullet in Turkey, where I was trying to balance getting all the necessary preparations done on the boat while trying to make it as enjoyable as possible for Ola at the same time. I had a vision as clear as day during our trip there. I was 33 years old, just married and for the first time in my life, I knew exactly what I was supposed to do. I had always felt my place was to help and continue my Father’s Ministry. That vision I had confirmed this. It seems we are always working on getting and keeping everything ready to bring the oppressed Jews home, However, we have a real problem here in Israel with poverty. So many people in this glorious Land don’t know if or when they will have their next meal. When we start to bring Jews back home in large numbers, most likely they will not be in great financial standings and will be looking for their basic survival needs. My vision simply put, was to feed as many people as possible and in doing so (when the time comes) everything will automatically be in place to feed the multitudes of people we, the Golden family bring home.
If you noticed the title of this letter being, “My Vision, Your Decision”, you ask yourself why such a strange title? The Golden Report simply cannot do anything without the support from our family in Christ.
If somehow this vision of mine speaks to you in any way and you feel like God is moving you in this direction, please pray and be led to share this vision with your family and friends. Help us Bless the people of Israel together by placing food on their table. This ministry relies on your donations.
Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem and for all the Soldiers in God’s Army.
Shalom, Joel Golden
